No lights on the roof Bob? Now that's a surprise! Lol, seriously, she's a nice build buddy. First car I ever learned to drive in. I'll never forget the sound of that engine, or the feel of that gas peddle, under my foot. It was nearly as big as my sneaker.

This was for a friend's daughter, she loves those old bugs and he asked me to build one for her.

The second flowerfull Beetle 🙂 Nice. I'm always smiling about the wide fenders and the tiny wheels.

Very nice job. I don't think I have ever seen a Bug that color. Do the folks that labeled the box have any concept of what a "Limousine"is?

Sehr schöner Käfer!

@Bill … It's written in the papers of the old Beetle: Limousine. In Germany, the word "Limousine" is not the same description like the saloon (GB) or the sedan (US). A Limousine can have two or four doors. Normally it has four doors but it's also possible to have two doors.

What a pisser! Is it a straightforward mod or are you stressing over it?
Bloody hell if anybody got the skills for mods it's you mate ;)

Thanks. I do get wound up however I have put it to one side and will have a think

#^%*~/> •\?{+ !! Right, rant over. Starting the re-build and now discovered the frame is twisted (Probably my fault). Only remedy I can think of at the moment is to build a new frame and start again. Hey ho... At least I can then sort out engine and front suspension placement.

How could I miss that one!
You did a good job on the paint job. The engine looks good too! We know, this kit is not the best out there. I wrote it to you: for me it's a piece of memory on my childhood. I love this kit nevertheless. Should make a project for mine too. Like yours: it's for restoration or to leave it as is - only to put the parts together again.

Thanks Christian for the thumbs up. Your right, brilliant model just dodgy parts and fitment issues. I also forgot to widen the rear wheel arches before painting, so it will not take much to get it back on track.
